Cannon Beachy

I'm on a little family trip to the beach right now. We came knowing the forecast was only 42 degrees and rain... but hey, we lucked out with a sunny 55 degree day! (no coats required if your used to the northwest, it feels so warm!)

Today I wore my new vintage Gunne Sax dress, another amazing Etsy find. I'm starting a collection of this brand, they are the perfect 70s dresses for me. All you need to do is shorten them, and they look modernish and new. (It's a little sad to cut into these, but at least they get to be worn and loved!)

Here are some picture from the day of my sister and I on the beach!

T3i's first trip - helicopter!

Got my Canon T3i today as planed, and one hour later I was in a helicopter!(pretty perfect timing....) Welcome to McMinnville Oregon... wine country! I had never been in a helicopter before today, it was pretty fun(duh, helicopter!). Our pilot was from Germany and super laid back, I had no fear at all flying up and down the hills of the area. I would love to do it again!

Oh, and the T3i is awesome!

on my way to...

I did some layout tweaks to the blog recently, bigger pictures beeeeecause......


I'm picking up my new canon T3i in Orgeon this afternoon!(fingers crossed!) Because of the earthquake in Japan, a few parts for this camera are currently not in production, so stores are selling out everywhere! But since I'm heading south this week anyway, I'm making a bit of a side-tour to find one, plus no sales tax! I probably could have purchased one online and made this easier... buuuut eh - new camera new friend new stories. My old canon has been out of commission for about a year, and it's been heartbreaking! Part of my soul has been missing, the blog has suffered, and many things have been undocumented :/

hey kiddos

This is when my dad had a motorcycle, doesn't he look coooool?! (right side)

and I don't know how I'm my mother's daughter because she was always soooo tan
when she was young... pasty white fo' life!

who knew we'd find a lake...

My sister and I opted not to go to work and Friday, and ended up booking it to Bellingham instead! We chose to go the long way & found ourselves on roads we had never been on before. - For example, we found this pretty lake! :)

I just watched Bonnie & Clyde for 1000000+ time tonight, and I'm still in love with it! It's one of my favorite plot lines... one has been done over and over in tones of films. Bandland(1973), Pierrot Le Fou(1965), my favs :]
